GILFORD — John Markland was 19 when he took his first job in law enforcement. He was taking a year off from school after an academically disappointing year at Keene State College, where he was studying to become a music teacher, when he was hired as a dispatcher for the police department in Newport, the town where he grew up. Markland went from dispatcher, to part-time officer to full-time officer in Newport and in 1988 he was hired in Gilford. At the end of this month, Markland, who has been chief since 2005, will conclude his career in law enforcement after 26 years. He submitted his letter of resignation on September 9. He found his way into law enforcement by happenstance. He said he applied for the dispatcher’s position for no reason other than, “I needed a job.” Soon, though, Markland saw that police have a daily opportunity to do good, to help people. He said, see GPd page 6 We Sell

Fact check: Warren Buffet paying higher tax rate than his secretary

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says he wants to make sure millionaires are taxed at higher rates than their secretaries. The data say they already are. “Warren Buffett’s secretary shouldn’t pay a higher tax rate than Warren Buffett. There is no justification for it,” Obama said as he announced his deficitreduction plan this week. “It is wrong that in the United States of America, a teacher or a nurse or a construction worker who earns $50,000 should pay higher tax rates than somebody pulling in $50 million.” On average, the wealthiest people in America pay a lot more taxes than the middle class or the poor, according to private and government data. They pay at a higher rate, and as a group, they contribute a much larger share of the overall taxes collected by the federal government. The 10 percent of households with the highest incomes pay see TAXES page 12

U.S. military officially ends ban on gay soldiers & sailors WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. military passed a historic milestone Tuesday with the repeal of the ban on gays serving openly in uniform, ending a prohibition that President Barack Obama said had forced gay and lesbian service members to “lie about who they are.” Defense Secretary Leon Panetta pledged not to allow other issues of equal opportunity, such as allowing women to serve in combat roles, to be ignored or set aside. “I am committed to removing all of the barriers that would prevent Americans from serving their country and from rising to the highest level of responsibility that their talents and capabilities warrant,” Panetta told a Pentagon news confer-

ence. “These are men and women who put their lives on the line in the defense of this country, and that’s what should matter the most.” Repeal of the 18-year-old legal provision — commonly known as “don’t ask, don’t tell,” under which gays can serve as long as they don’t openly acknowledge their sexual orientation — took effect Tuesday at 12:01 a.m. EDT. Appearing with Panetta for what was probably his final news Pentagon conference as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, retiring Navy Adm. Mike Mullen said that with the new law allowing gays to serve openly, the military is a stronger, more tolerant force with greater character

and honor. “I still believe that it was first and foremost a matter of integrity, that it was fundamentally against everything we stand for as an institution to force people to lie about who they are just to wear a uniform,” Mullen said. “We are better than that.” Some in Congress still oppose the change, arguing that it may undermine order and discipline, but top Pentagon leaders have certified that it will not hurt the military’s ability to recruit or to fight wars. Obama issued a statement saying he is confident that lifting the ban will enhance U.S. national security. “As of today, patriotic Americans in unisee GAY BAN page 8

ATLANTA (AP) — Yet another appeal denied, Troy Davis was left with little to do Tuesday but wait to be executed for a murder he insists he did not commit. He lost his most realistic chance to avoid lethal injection on Tuesday, when Georgia’s pardons board rejected his appeal for clemency. As his scheduled 7 p.m. Wednesday execution neared, his backers resorted

to far-fetched measures: urging prison workers to strike or call in sick, asking prosecutors to block the execution — even considering a desperate appeal for White House intervention. He has gotten support from hundreds of thousands of people, including a former FBI director, former President Jimmy Carter and Pope Benedict XVI, and a

U.S. Supreme Court ruling gave him an unusual opportunity to prove his innocence last year. State and federal courts, however, repeatedly upheld his conviction for the 1989 killing of Mark MacPhail, an off-duty police officer who was working as a security guard in Savannah when he was shot dead rushing to help a homeless man see CONDEMNED page 11

Gunmen attack Shiite pilgrims in Pakistan; 26 dead Demographer says N.H. housing market will suffer if state keeps getting grayer

MANCHESTER (AP) — Unless more young families move into New Hampshire in the next decade, the state’s housing market will suffer, a demographer at a panel discussion on housing said Tuesday. Peter Francese, director of demographic forecasts for the New England Economic Partnership, said all household growth in New Hampshire in the last decade was among Baby Boomers and retirees. He said the 60,000 households currently occupied by residents 65 to 74 years old will rise to more than 100,000 by 2020. There also will be a corresponding rise in demand in continuing care treatment facilities and in property tax abatements among that age group, he said. At the same time, Francese said, more young adults have been leaving the state. He projects a drop of about 30,000 households in New Hampshire in the 35-to-44-year-old age group in the next decade. Francese said New Hampshire is one of the fastest-aging states, second only to Maine. “I believe very strongly that this decade must not turn into a repeat of the past decade,” he said. “A wellfunctioning housing market needs a reasonably wellbalanced population. ... We need more families with children, and I hope we get them.” Francese was part of a group of representatives of housing, building and real estate associations that met at the Radisson in Manchester to discuss the state’s housing market and its impact on the economy. The discussion was hosted by the Business and Industry Association of New Hampshire. When asked where younger people are going and what’s driving them to leave, Francese said many have gone to North and South Carolina. He said at the same time New Hampshire lost 22,000 children over the last decade, North Carolina had an influx of about 50,000 children. He said states like the Carolinas have a different attitude about housing and school districts than in New England. School districts are much larger in the Carolinas — about the size of counties — so property taxes are lower than in the small communities in New England. Dennis Delay, an economist with the New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Studies, said that the recession has caused housing prices to fall everywhere, cutting off migration to New Hampshire from other states, such as Massachusetts. He said people in Massachusetts have even higher housing prices than those who live in New Hampshire, so it’s more difficult for them to move. Delay said while the recession of 2008 is considered over, indicated by such trends as an increase in U.S. exports and consumers paying down their debt, there’s still a feeling of uncertainty about the future among some people, so they are not confident see GRAYING page 14

UNH professor convicted of indecent exposure won’t teach

DURHAM (AP) — The University of New Hampshire says a professor convicted of exposing himself to two women will not be allowed to teach or meet with students during his three-year probation. German professor Ed Larkin pleaded guilty to indecent exposure in the March 2009 incident in Milford. The UNH administration had tried to fire him, but a labor arbitrator ruled that Larkin could keep his job. Last week, an editorial in the university’s student newspaper warned readers that a “pervert” could be their professor next fall. But a UNH spokesman issued a statement Tuesday saying Larkin will not be teaching or meeting with students for two years. When he returns for the spring semester, his duties will include independent scholarly work, helping develop online courses and assisting with administrative duties.

ISLAMABAD (AP) — Suspected Sunni extremists opened fire on Shiite Muslim pilgrims traveling by bus through southwest Pakistan on Tuesday on their way to in Iran, killing 26 people, officials and survivors said. Sunni militants with ideological and operational links to al-Qaida and the Taliban have carried out scores of bombings and shootings against Shiites in recent years, but this attack was especially bloody. At least eight attackers in a pickup truck blocked the path of the bus as it traveled through Baluchistan province, and then forced the passengers off, said Khushhal Khan, the driver of the vehicle. The passengers tried to run away, but the gunmen opened fire, killing 26 people and wounding six others, said Khan. The attackers then drove off, leaving the dying and wounded where they lay. It was nearly an hour before rescue teams arrived, he said. There were around 40 people on the bus.

Local television footage showed rescue workers loading the dead and wounded into ambulances to take them to the main southwestern town of Quetta, about 35 miles (55 kilometers) to the north. Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, one of the country’s most ruthless Sunni militant groups, claimed responsibility in a telephone call to a local journalist in Quetta, but that claim could not be verified. Vehicles carrying Shiite pilgrims are usually provided with protection as they travel through Mastung, but authorities weren’t notified about this bus, said Saeed Umrani, a government official in Mastung. Iran and neighboring Iraq are home to many important Shiite shrines. Pakistan is a majority Sunni Muslim state, with around 15 percent Shiite. Most Sunnis and Shiites live together peacefully in Pakistan, though tensions have existed for decades.

Whose country is this anyway? For the third straight year, the median income of the typical American family fell in 2010. Adjusted for inflation, it is back where it was in 1996, the longest period of zero growth since the Depression. And the poverty rate has inched up to 15.1 percent. Both figures, however, should be put in perspective. For example, a family can be classified as poor and own a car, a flatscreen TV and a computer, and have a washer-dryer and a garbage disposal. Folks below the poverty line have their kids educated free in Head Start, for 13 years in public schools, then get Pell grants for college. They get free food stamps and health care through Medicaid. They get subsidized housing and earned income tax credits, are eligible for all other safety-net programs, and can earn $23,300 in pretax income and pay no income taxes. Poverty in 21st century America is not poverty in the Paris of “Les Miserables” or the London of Oliver Twist or the Dust Bowl of Tom Joad. The 15-year stagnation in the median income of the American family, however — a vanishing of the American Dream that one’s children will know a better life — is a more serious matter. For there are causes of the stunted growth in the standard of living of the American family that neither party is willing to address, if either of them even recognizes those causes. First is the immersion of the U.S. economy in a global economy. This plunged U.S. workers into direct competition with workers in Asia and Latin America willing to do the same jobs for far less, in factories where regulations are far lighter. U.S. corporate executives leapt at the opportunity to close plants here and relocate abroad. This explains the 50,000 factories that disappeared in the Bush decade and the 5.5 million manufacturing jobs that vanished. You cannot have a rising standard of living when your highest-paid production jobs are being exported overseas. Now, to buy the goods of the foreign factories that used to be here, we are shoveling out more and more of America’s wealth. Our national bill for imported goods and services is $2.5-trillion a year. The U.S. trade deficit is back up to between $550-billion and $600-billion a year. If President Obama wishes to know why his $800-billion stimulus bill didn’t have the kick he expected, he should look at the “seepage” problem. How do you stimulate the U.S. economy when the workers you retain or rehire with your stimulus billions head for Walmarts on Saturday to buy goods made in Japan, Korea and China? Our $6-trillion in trade deficits in the Bush decade stimulated economies all over the world, just not our own. Indeed, the most successful

economies of the last decade were China and Germany. Not coincidentally, they were the world’s two largest exporting countries. There are time-honored ways that nations have turned around such situations. What prevents us from adopting them? An ignorance of our own history, the immense investment of our transnational corporations in the new global arrangement, and the opposition of a World Trade Organization to which we have surrendered our national sovereignty. A second reason why the median income of American families is back to 1996 levels and sinking is mass immigration, legal and illegal. According to analyst Ed Rubenstein of, the United States, despite an unemployment rate above 9-percent, imports 100,000 immigrant workers every single month. Numbers USA contends that 125,000 foreign workers are brought in every month. Thus, well over a million workers are added annually to our labor force when 14-million Americans are looking for work. Why are we doing this? Is it xenophobic to say our own citizens should come first, that the importation of foreign workers must halt until our own unemployed have found jobs? A huge share of our immigrant population is Hispanic. And Rubenstein finds that for every 100 Hispanics employed in the United States in year 2001, 126 are employed today. But for every 100 non-Hispanics employed in 2001, only 98 are working today. What prevents our politicians from putting Americans first, deporting illegal aliens and suspending the importation of foreign labor until our own workers are back on the job? Politics is one reason. Democrats see illegal aliens and their children as future Democratic voters. Republicans are terrified of being called racists and alienating the ethnic lobbies. Crass commercial interest is another reason. U.S. companies see immigrants, legal or illegal, as an endless source of cheap labor to keep wage costs down. And they are right. But who is looking out for the national interest, for all of the members of the American family, especially the unemployed? If the median income of the American family is falling, already back to where it was in Bill Clinton’s first term, Middle America is one of the big losers in the global economy. And who are the big winners? (Syndicated columnist Pat Buchanan has been a senior advisor to three presidents, twice a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination and the presidential nominee of the Reform Party in 2000. He won the New Hampshire Republican Primary in 1996.)

LETTERS Why do we need to continually experiment with our children? To the editor, What is going on in N.H. high schools? Timberlane Regional got rid of final exams and midyears. Spaulding High is looking at eliminating either all letter grades or the failing grade “F”. Campbell High doesn’t count homework as part of a student’s grade. Franklin High is replacing its traditional report card with a “competency based” report card. These examples are all elements of an initiative from the N.H. Department of Education called High School Redesign. The initiative has its roots in a change in the Approval Standards ( Ed 306.27 b&d ) which no longer required a student to do “seat time” in order to obtain credit; instead, a student could simply demonstrate their mastery by completing “competencies”. The Dept. of Education refers to this as the elimination of the Carnegie Unit. Simple research shows other states have investigated similar changes, but to my knowledge, only N.H. has taken up this very progressive approach at the state level. To be clear, Competency Based = Standards Based, an evolution of the earlier Outcome-Based Education model. Outcome-Based Education was widely rejected as unworkable in the U.S. in

the 1990s. The original model of OBE attempted to change the structure of education and grading by massively individualizing instruction. The most important figure in the standards movement is Marc Tucker of the National Center for Education and the Economy (NCEE), who designed a system of standards and assessments to earn a Certificate of Initial Mastery. The credential has since been abandoned by every state in which it was adopted. Unfortunately, who has been advising the NH DOE ? ...... the very same Marc Tucker. Why do we need to continually experiment with our kids? If you ask the DOE, they will say “trust us. This is Twenty First Century Learning and what we had (traditional education and academics) was the outdated industrial model and no longer applies.” NH students have regularly had SAT scores that are well above the national average. Why do we want to mess with that and roll the dice on something that has been a failure in the U.S. and Australia? What our students need is more basic 19th Century skills, pure and simple.

Mr. Hoyt’s letter gets filed as example of he’d call ‘hate speech’ To the editor, Last week Jon Hoyt, a retired EMT of Bridgewater, wrote that he will not protect or render aid to any dying Ron Paul Tea Party supporters. Thank god Jon Hoyt of Bridgewater is retired. I’ve never met anyone in the service or rescue business define triage as only taking care of the people you like and letting the people you don’t, die. Not to mention that he is obviously hard of hearing. I’m not a Ron Paul supporter, as of yet, but I did hear Ron Paul say “we don’t need government to solve all these problems, I was a doctor and we used to just take care of people in need. That’s what people do.” I say Amen to that! Unfortunately today’s

government union motto is “we’ll do no job until we get paid premium pay, premium benefits, more days off and take as long as possible to assure we milk every dime.” If you don’t agree with that line of thinking then the likes of Mr. Hoyt will simply ignore the job you paid him to do and let you die! His letter gets filed along side of those written by our local professors and other liberals as clear examples of what they themselves call “hate speech”. I still call it “free speech” in which I encourage them to keep writing. The more they write, the better the Tea Party looks! Terry Stewart Gilford

LETTERS Let’s remember that each time a law is made, rights have ended To the editor, Noting the Federal Reserves near zero interest rate policy and its effect on small banks across the nation I am reminded of President Obama’s fellow Chicagoan Rahm Emanuel’s political policy, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” What he didn’t say was, not to let the opportunity of a serious crisis slip by. What are we to do as individuals, especially as individuals with a birthright of freedom? Read the N.H. Constitution, especially the first ten articles — written in 1784 by the people, not some governing body appointed (or not). We should not let others label us. It was the King of England who declared the colonies to be in revolution, the titling stuck. It was the king and Parliament that were revolting against the people in their attempt to deny them their rights under common law and the Magna Charta. What the colonist achieved was the retaining of those rights, hardly revolting. That’s all we have. Each time the town, city, county, state or federal government makes a law, creates an agency or what ever, those rights are eroded. The state gas

tax was to be used solely for roads. The federal gas tax originally created in 1932 to balance the federal budget, then WWII, Korean War and in 1956 the interstate highway system. Bush Sr. and Clinton used it to pay down the deficit and always as a control mechanism on the people and the states. We live in New Hampshire; the seasons come and go, changing as the centuries have passed. N.H. had declared its independence from England in Jan 1776, governed itself and had its Constitution all before July 1776 when the rest of the colonies “joined in” so to speak. What we have received from N.H.’s founders (that is the people) is not to be governed but our right to govern ourselves. We are told what to fry with, cook with, reduce sugar, reduce salt. Gandhi started his revolt against England by producing salt from the sea, an illegal act. England controlled the salt supply knowing its central importance to life.

We need Americans to be productive — feeders instead of eaters To the editor, I read with interest Mr. Lukens letter advocating self reliance as the standard for our society and legislation. Unless he envisions a nation of 400-million Outward Bound graduates living alone in the woods, he must recognize that we have a society where people have to do things and make things for other people and have things done and made for them. It is a paradox that we have to do a lot for people to make them self reliant. For one thing (of many), people

need jobs to be self reliant. This requires a functioning economy, which is problematic just now. I would suggest that a better standard would be to have people be productive — feeders rather than eaters. Government has a large role to play to play in making this happen; we should all work together to make sure this happens as efficiently and effectively as possible. Johan Andersen Gilford

I just see a lot of hate and bigotry; not a Christian in the bunch To the editor, Here it is 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon and I have CSPAN on and what do I see? Ah yes, the TEA PARTY CIRCUS — all decked out in their camouflage and toy revolutionary costumes — lily white, mostly middle aged. The only color I see is the red of their necks. About as diverse as the KKK. Wait a

minute, they’re here, too, but of course I don’t see any hoods. Just look in their bloodshot eyes — a lot of hate and bigotry. Not a Christian in the lot. Well, even though its not Halloween, I see the party has already started. BOOO! Ray Corliss Laconia


I’m adding Col. Richard Juve of Meredith to my list of Marine heroes  To the editor, I would like to add Marine Col. Richard Juve to my list of Marine heroes who refused to remain in silent complicity for government actions that led to the deaths of large numbers of people for no good reason. The other Marine heroes are twice medal

of honor winner, General Smedley Butler (war is a racket), highly decorated General David Shoup (from the Vietnam era) and Col. John Barr (WWII, Korea and Vietnam). Leo R. Sandy New Hampton

Don’t blame me, I’m not one who asked government to run my life To the editor, In Jack Stephenson’s letter about Obama’s birth certificate, which we all saw on the net, can anyone who saw it tell me why his birth certificate says Barack Hussein as his name, when in all reality, he was born Barry? Also why has Obama stated he has deported many illegals, when his aunt is still in this country illegally, collecting welfare from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts?

GPD from page one “You might not change the world but you could change someone’s world. I thought, yeah, maybe that’s the job for me.” Markland didn’t plan for a career in law enforcement, and he didn’t plan to stay in Gilford for 22 years, either. He said that in 1988, when he came to Gilford, his plan was to “get my feet wet” and after a couple of years, find a job in a big city such as Boston or New York. It wasn’t long before Gilford got its hooks in him, though. “I fell in love with the community, I fell in love with the job I was doing... I just enjoyed being here.” When he first came to Gilford, he worked as the D.A.R.E. officer, which he listed among the highlights of his career. He recalled how an adult man approached him one day and told him that his lessons in D.A.R.E. class had helped him stay on the right path in life. “That’s a huge highlight,” he said. Another thing he’s proud of is developing the department’s mission statement, which will soon be presented to selectmen. “I’m very proud that’s finally done.” His proudest achievement, though, is assembling and developing the current staff of the department. “This is a great police department – an unbelievable department. Everybody’s got their own niche in this department and they get along really well.” When he arrived in Gilford, Mark-

land said, the department didn’t have a set hiring practice. In 1991, with the blessing of then-chief Evans Juris, Markland went for training to develop a policy for selecting candidates and performing background checks. “I’m extremely proud of the individuals that work here,” he said, noting that he is sometimes accused of being overprotective of his employees. “I have the best, I think every chief should feel that way.” The talent in his department is part of the reason why Markland feels assured in submitting his resignation, which was what he called one of the most difficult decisions in his life. “I wouldn’t leave unless I knew this department was ready. We have a bunch of developed officers who are ready to move up.” At 45, Markland could hold on to his position for another decade or more. However, earlier this year, something happened: his daughter and son-inlaw-to-be took him fishing with his young grandson. For the first time in years, Markland, who has had strong philosophical disagreement with town leadership, didn’t think about work. Floating on a kayak in the Merrymeeting River, he said he experienced relaxation. “That was the moment when I had to realize, was my job, health-wise, going to prevent me from seeing my grandson graduate high school?...Maybe it see next page

School board committee to hold special meeting to talk about how to pay for LHS ceiling repair By Gail OBer


LACONIA — Superintendent Bob Champlin told the School Board last night that the ceiling collapse in the high school library is completely fixed, but he would like a special meeting of the Budget and Personnel Committee to discuss paying for the repair. No dollar amount was given. Budget and Personnel Chair Scott Vachon said Oct. 6 at 7 p.m. at Harvard Street would be the best time for the meeting. Champlin said the forced plaster in the oldest of the three buildings on campus collapsed largely “because its old.” He said the ceilings were installed in the 1920s and since the recent collapse, the engineering firm of RistFrost Shumway has evaluated the remaining ceilings and, when needed, reinforced them.

Champlin said none of the computers were damaged during the partial collapse and aside from a dent in one bookshelf there doesn’t appear to be any permanent damage. He said cleaning the plaster dust was probably the biggest task, but all things considered, the district was very lucky. He said he has contacted the school district’s insurance carrier, Primex, but has yet to hear back from them. Both he and Board Chair Bob Dassatti wanted to thank all of the staff and local contractors who pitched in to clean the entire library and get it up and completely operational within a week. In other news, the School Board voted unanimously to recommend to the city that the gate receipts for the Sept. 30 Alumni Reunion will be donated to the Lakes Region Scholarship Fund.

Correction: That’s $461 thousand, not million

An article in the Tuesday, Sept. 20 edition of The Daily Sun reported that since 1993 the State Aid Highway Program has accrued $461,372,53 for improvements to Meredith Neck

Road. The second comma should be a period, making the correct amount $461,372.53. The project is estimated to cost between $4-million and $5-million.

from preceding page law enforcement.” He stayed on until one of his two stress-free dream jobs opened up – either a parts driver for NAPA or the greeter at Wal-Mart. On October 3, Markland reports for training at Roger Landry’s NAPA store on Union Avenue in Laconia. He’s looking forward to leaving the politics behind and spending more time with his family. However, there will be parts of his career that he won’t be so eager to leave behind. “One of the things I’ll miss the most is Old Home Day,” he said. This year, for example, he brought up the back of the parade

and was showered with applause from the townspeople. “That’s probably the best feeling in the world right there,” he said. “It shows why I love this community so much.” “This is something I’ve been doing since I was 19,” Markland said. “I guess there’s a time when somebody has to draw a line in the sand and say, that’s enough.” It will still be tough for him to turn in his badge, though. “I’m sure when it happens it’s going to be one of the worst feelings I’ve had. It’s been an honor to have the ability to help citizens when I can. It’s been an extreme honor for me to be the chief.”

Pair of local non-profits cooperating, rather than competing, in bids to raise funds through the sale of state tax credits Community Services & Cultural Arts Center holding info reception on Sept. 27 BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Two local organizations tapping the same pot of money will cooperate rather than compete by combining their fundraising efforts to pursue the renovation of two downtown buildings. Lakes Region Community Services (LRCS) , which was literally given the Federal Building on North Main Street, and the Cultural Arts Center of the Lakes Region (CACLR), which is planning to reopen the Colonial Theater, were both awarded tax credits by the New Hampshire Community Development Finance Authority (CDFA). LRCS was allotted $956.250 and the Colonial Theater $625,000. The CDFA’s tax credit program offers businesses an incentive to invest in the community by providing them with a tax credit equal to 75-percent of their contribution against any or all state taxes — the Business Profits Tax, Business Profits Tax and Insurance Premium Tax — for five years. Firms can also report qualified investments as charitable contributions on their federal tax returns. Altogether, the program enables businesses to make contributions for a cost of 11 cents on the dollar. When the tax credits were awarded, Christine Santaniello, executive director of LRCS, and Rod Dyer, who chairs the CACLR, agreed to work together in marketing the tax credits to local and regional firms. Stressing that both projects would benefit downtown, Santaniello remarked “we decided better together.” “A rising tide floats all boats,” Dyer agreed.”This is strictly a joint enterprise.” GAY BAN from page 2 form will no longer have to lie about who they are in order to serve the country they love,” he said. “As of today, our armed forces will no longer lose the extraordinary skills and combat experience of so many gay and lesbian service members.” The head of Pentagon personnel policies issued a memo to the work force at a minute after midnight Tuesday. “All service members are to treat one another with dignity and respect regardless of sexual orientation,” the memo from Clifford Stanley said. Gay advocacy groups celebrated across the country. At a San Diego bar, current and former troops danced and counted down to midnight. “You are all heroes,” Sean Sala, a former Navy operations specialist, said. “The days of your faces being blacked out on the news — no more.” A lingering question is whether disciplinary proce-

The two groups have invited more than 100 firms to a meeting on Tuesday, September 27, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Belknap Mill where Kathy Bogle Shields, executive director of the CDFA, will explain the tax credit program, and Santaniello and Dyer will pitch their projects. Noting that LRCS will take possession of the Federal Building on December 1, Santaniello said that the funds will be used to achieve energy efficiencies to reduce annual operating costs and address accessibility issues to comply with federal regulations. She said that the building would house 60 employees of LRCS and another non-profit corporation would occupy some space. Santaniello said that Franklin Savings Bank has commited to purchasing an undisclosed amount of tax credits from LRCS. Dyer said that the CACLR seeks additional funding to complete the due diligence required to undertake a study of the feasibility of renovating and reopening the Colonial Theater as well as to complete a business plan for its operation.He said that Laconia Savings Bank has agreed to purchase $250,000 worth of tax credits and the CACLR has also submitted applications for other funds to acquire and redevelop the property, including a grant for the Land and Community Heritage Program. “The project would have a significant impact on downtown,” Dyer said, adding that an opertaing theater would employ 17 people and draw an estimated 40,000 patrons a year. In order to plan for refreshments, Santaniello asked firms to RSVP to Judy McGuire at LRCS, 524-8811, extension 181, or by e-mail to

dures are adequate to deal with any future instances of harassment of gays in the ranks. Michael Corgan, a professor of international relations at Boston University and a U.S. Naval Academy graduate, said it’s mainly a matter of leadership. “Discipline problems that might arise from gays serving with an overwhelmingly straight population in the military should be able to be handled the way any other disciplinary problems are, if commanders are up to their jobs,” Corgan said. In Iraq, a spokesman for U.S forces put out a statement noting that all troops there had been trained for the change. For weeks the military services have accepted applications from openly gay recruits, while waiting for repeal to take effect before processing the applications.

LACONIA — The WOW Fest might only have occurred three times so far but after observing the annual fundraiser this past weekend, WOW Trail board member Allan Beetle thinks the event is sure to become a runaway success for the non-profit organization that’s trying to build a 10-mile, $10-million recreation trail through the city. “It went really, really well,” Beetle said on Tuesday. The festival saw more than 500 people either participate in an athletic event or show up to the barbecue and festival at the Laconia Athletic & Swim Club afterward. “We’re really pleased with the growth of the event.” That participation figure is about a 60-percent increase over last year, which itself was up from the first year the event was held. Perhaps more indicative of the growing support Beetle feels the WOW Trail is enjoying is the sponsors, which tripled in number over last year’s event. The event’s headlining sponsor is among the new benefactors, Beetle noted. “I want to give a big thank-you to Laconia Savings Bank for coming on board.” This year saw a total of five exercise events on the program: a three mile walk, a five kilometer run, a 10 kilometer run, a bicycle ride 15 miles long and a 67 mile ride around Lake Winnipesaukee. The most popular event, Beetle noted, was the longer run, which featured a scenic loop around the city. Thanks to increased support from both participants and sponsors, Beetle reported that the event raised close to $20,000 for the trail building effort. That’s still a second-place finish compared to the WOW Sweepstakes Ball, the organization’s longerrunning fundraiser, but it shows that the WOW Fest has the potential to help the group reach its ultimate goal. So far, the group has completed one stretch of trail, leading from Lakeport Square to downtown, at a cost of $820,000, and has begun working toward the second phase, which will connect the trail from downtown to the Belmont town line. The WOW Trail is conceived as a part of a much larger trail network that, if plans are realized, will allow walkers, runners or bicyclists to travel from Meredith to as far as Franklin, where they can connect to another trail system that could take them to Lebanon. Beetle thinks that such a trail, or even just the portion connecting downtown Laconia to Meredith village, would be a significant boon to the local tourism-related businesses. “It’s a great amenity to our community. It will also be very much an economic stimulus for the area. We want to continue to give people a reason to come to the Lakes Region.” Before that stimulus can be felt, organizations such as the WOW Trail committee will have to do a RICH VELASQUEZ YOUTH SPORTS EQUIPMENT FOUNDATION

lot of fundraising. “It’s a big number that we need to get the trail built,” Beetle acknowledged. He thinks that events such as the WOW Fest are just the way to do it, through both direct and indirect means. The event raises money to directly further their plans, it also brings people to the trail and builds a network of fans and supporters for the project. The growth in participation in the event tells Beetle that the event’s organizers, and the more than 100 volunteers who run the operation, are doing something right. “It tells me that it’s a good event and it’s a fun event to participate in. People are going home and saying, hey that was a fun day, we’ll go back next year and bring someone else along.” Looking forward to next year, Beetle said some “slight modifications” will be made to the event, mostly with an eye for a more efficient proceedings, but that the overall flavor will stay the same. “I see this being a 1,000 person event in a couple more years,” he said.

Only 3% of Laconia voters show interest in Tuesday’s primary election; no significant results By Michael Kitch LACONIA — The tally read more like football scores than election results as a mere 259 of the 8,422 registered voters in the city — 3-percent — cast ballots in the municipal primary election yesterday. The general election will be held Tuesday, Nov. 8 and the top two vote getters in each race, if there were two, will have their names printed on the ballot. In the case of residents who received write-in votes, their names will be not be added to the ballot without their permission. Turnout was highest in Ward 6 where 84 of the 1,711 voters, 5-percent, went to the polls. Incumbent city councilor Armand Bolduc was challenged by Anthony Felch, who after being struck from ballot for failing to report his change of address before the filing period opened, mounted a write-in campaign. Bolduc topped the poll with 54 while Felch made a showing with 20 write-in votes to win a place on the general election ballot. By a single vote, the smallest turnout was in Ward 2 where but for one a barefoot poll watcher could count the voters on his hands and feet. Matt Lahey, the incumbent city councilor, tallied 17 votes while Richard Beaudoin, who announced his write-in campaign on the eve of the election, secured a spot on the ballot in November with three votes. Just 21 of 1,294 — two-percent — voters turned out. Only 22 ballots were cast in Ward 5, where the 2-percent turnout matched Ward 2. Incumbent city councilor Bob Hamel garnered 20 votes. The closest race was run in Ward 1 between incumbent city councilor Ava Doyle and her declared rival

Mark Condodemetraky. Doyle won the first round, 27 to 16, foreshadowing a competitive contest for the seat in November. Just 46 of the 1,733 voters in the ward cast ballots. In Ward 4, Brenda Baer again faced Jack Terrill in a rematch of the contest she won to keep her seat in the last general election in 2010. Baer took 43 votes to Terrill’s 11 yesterday when only 54 of 1,312 voters went to the polls. Incumbent city councilor Henry Lipman made a clean sweep in Ward 3, capturing all 32 of the total votes cast by the 1,188 registered voters in the ward. Mayor Mike Seymour polled 236 of the 259 votes cast. As City Clerk Mary Reynolds feared, the primary failed to return a full slate of election officials. Each ward elects a moderator, clerk, supervisor of the checklist and three selectmen. Reynolds said that all six positions are vacant in Ward 5 while Ward 4 is short a clerk and Ward 2 a supervisor of the checklist, leaving seven of the 36 offices empty. Reynolds said that she can deputize people to fill the positions at the general election in November when she hopes some of the vacancies may be filled by write-in candidates. She is concerned to ensure that the polls are fully staffed for the First-in-the Nation Presidential Primary, which is expected to be held in February and urges those interested in serving to contact her at 527-1265. The cost of the primary election to city property taxpayers will likely exceed $3,000. Reynolds said she spent $2,300 printing the ballots and programming the voter machines. The supervisors of the checklist receive $100 for their day’s work and other poll workers are paid $7.25 per hour.

CONDEMNED from page 2 who was being attacked. Davis’ attorneys say he was convicted based on flawed testimony that has been largely recanted by witnesses, but prosecutors and MacPhail’s relatives say they have no doubt the right man is being punished. “Justice was finally served for my father,” said Mark MacPhail Jr., who was an infant when his father was gunned down. “The truth was finally heard.” As Davis’ attorneys considered filing another appeal, his supporters planned vigils and rallies around the world. Nearly 1 million signed a petition seeking clemency, according to Amnesty International. “Allowing a man to be sent to death under an enormous cloud of doubt about his guilt is an outrageous affront to justice,” said Larry Cox, who heads Amnesty International USA. Georgia initially planned to execute Davis in July 2007, but the pardons board granted him a stay

less than 24 hours before he was to die. The U.S. Supreme Court stepped in a year later and halted the lethal injection just two hours before he was to be executed. And a federal appeals court halted another planned execution a few months later. This time, state officials are confident this lethal injection will be carried out. Georgia’s governor does not have the power to grant condemned inmates clemency. Davis supporters are calling on Chatham County District Attorney Larry Chisolm to block the execution. But the prosecutor said in a statement Tuesday he’s powerless to withdraw an execution order for Davis issued by a state Superior Court judge. “We appreciate the outpouring of interest in this case; however, this matter is beyond our control,” Chisolm said. Spencer Lawton, the prosecutor who secured Davis’ conviction in 1991, said he has no doubt he is guilty.

It was the Arlene Drive and Elaine Drive attempts that the police came closest to catching Mullarkey allegedly in the act. The owner of the home called police at 5:12 a.m. to report a person with a slim build wearing a dark grey sweatshirt and dark gray sweat pants had been on her back porch trying to break into storage closets. Earlier that morning, around 3:57 a.m. an Arlene

Drive resident also reported a male wearing clothing like those described above had tried to break into his house. Police from Sanbornton, Belmont and Tilton searched the area but found no one. After Shepard and Mullarkey were ordered held on bail, Laconia Det. Christopher Noyes continued to investigate the as yet unsolved burglaries. After getting cell phone records from Jess Mullarkey and Shepard, Noyes sent Belmont police text messages he recovered between the two phones during the morning of the August 23 incidents. Affidavits says the messages came from Jess Mullarkey’s phone — police believe Spencer Mullarkey was using it — and went to Shepard’s phone. In one, Mullarkey allegedly texted “I have every cop on my ass” and in another said the police had been chasing him for three hours. During the Aug. 24 interviews, affidavits indicate Mullarkey related details to them about the above homes, allegedly telling police how he was able to get into them and in one case what they allegedly took.

In some cases, statements made in affidavits indicate some of the Belmont homes were occupied and in other cases they were not. A clerk at the N.H. 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division said Shepard will appear there today. Mullarkey is being held in Belknap County Jail while Shepard is being held in Carroll County Jail. MEREDITH from page one into Meredith Bay, and again on September 13. Both breaks occurred near the Town Docks Restaurant. Leonard told the selectmen this week that when a 10-foot section of the ductile iron pipe was removed a hole approximately three inches in diameter was found. He said that the pipe had rotted from outside in, which indicated that the material used to backfill the trench was “unsuitable.” At the point of failure, the main runs beneath two 36-inch drains at a depth of about eight feet, easily below the level of the lake, and was continuously underwater. Leonard ventured that the acidity of the backfill material may have reacted with the water to corrode the pipe. “This began as a pinhole,” said Leonard, who suspected the pipe may have been leaking into the ground for as long as three years before the sewage reached the surface and become visible. Moreover, he said that the section of pipe that was removed was pocked and pitted along its length, indicating that the failures were not isolated but reflected the deterioration of a significant section of the main. “There could be other leaks and the entire pipe could be at risk,” he said. Leonard said that similar pipes failed in Gilford and Center Harbor in the past. The main was laid in the early 1980s when the WRBP was constructed. However, the ownership of the pipe remains in question. He said that the town has no record that ownership of the main was ever transferred to the town and officials the WRBP concede that its ownership is “a gray area.” Although Leonard oversaw the repairs, the WRBP will reimburse the town for the work from its “sinking” fund. TAXES from page 2 more than half of all federal taxes. They pay more than 70 percent of federal income taxes, according to the Congressional Budget Office. In his White House address on Monday, Obama called on Congress to increase taxes by $1.5 trillion as part of a 10-year deficit reduction package totaling more than $3 trillion. He proposed that Congress overhaul the tax code and impose what he called the “Buffett rule,” named for the billionaire investor. The rule says, “People making more than $1 million a year should not pay a smaller share of their income in taxes than middle-class families pay.” Buffett wrote in a recent piece for The New York Times that the tax rate he paid last year was lower than that paid by any of the other 20 people in his office. “Middle-class families shouldn’t pay higher taxes than millionaires and billionaires,” Obama said. “That’s pretty straightforward. It’s hard to argue against that.” There may be individual millionaires who pay taxes at rates lower than middle-income workers. In 2009, 1,470 households filed tax returns with incomes above $1 million yet paid no federal income tax, according to the Internal Revenue Service. But that’s less than 1 percent of the nearly 237,000 returns with incomes above $1 million. This year, households making more than $1 million will pay an average of 29.1 percent of their income in federal taxes, including income taxes, payroll taxes and other taxes, according to the Tax Policy Center, a Washington think tank. Households making between $50,000 and $75,000 will pay an average of 15 percent of their income in federal taxes. Lower-income households will pay less. For example, households making between $40,000 and $50,000 will pay an average of 12.5 percent of their income in federal taxes. Households making between $20,000 and $30,000 will pay 5.7 percent. The latest IRS figures are a few years older — and limited to federal income taxes — but show much

USA Football awards Laconia High $50k grant toward purchase of FieldTurf brand artificial surface BY MICHAEL KITCH LACONIA — The High School has become the first in New Hampshire to be awarded a grant by USA Football and FieldTurf toward the purchase and installation of a synthetic playing surface. Last week the Huot Regional Technical Education Center Renovation Committee endorsed a plan to slightly relocate the football field at the High School and install a synthetic playing surface. LHS was among four school districts, two high schools, one university and municipality to earn grants worth $50,000. Steve Alic of USA Football said that this, the first year of the grant program, was very competitive with “dozens of applications submitted.” Champlin said that Principal Steve Beals applied for the grant when the Field Committee, which was convened to consider the future of the football field in light of plans to renovate the Huot Technical Center, recommended installing a synthetic field in general and FieldTurf surface in particular. The award is bound to the installation of a FieldTurf brand surface. More than 100 NCAA Division 1 college teams and 22 of 32 National Football League teams play or practice on FieldTurf fields, including

the New England Patriots. “FieldTurf is the industry standard,” Champlin said. An artificial playing surface would cost $680,000 to install compared to $540,000 for a natural grass, with the difference represented by the cost of materials. With the grant the difference between the two would be narrowed from $140,000 to $90,000. However, a natural grass field would cost $52,500 a year to maintain compared to only $5,000 for a synthetic field. The Huot Regional Technical Education Center Renovation Committee chose to relocate the football field in order to keep it on the Union Avenue campus while providing space for the expansion of the Huot Technical Center in the near term and the high school in the long term. The plan calls for excavating the hillside and shifting the field to the east, so that the home team (west) sideline would split the existing goalposts. The move would provide an additional 15 yards beyond each end zone, which are very near the property lines, in compliance with standards set by the NHIAA, All seating would be in a single grandstand on the east side of the field, which football coach Craig Kozens said was increasingly common at schools around the state.

from preceding page the same thing. In 2009, taxpayers who made $1 million or more paid on average 24.4 percent of their income in federal income taxes, according to the IRS. Those making $100,000 to $125,000 paid on average 9.9 percent in federal income taxes. Those making $50,000 to $60,000 paid an average of 6.3 percent. Obama’s claim hinges on the fact that, for highincome families and individuals, investment income is often taxed at a lower rate than wages. The top tax rate for dividends and capital gains is 15 percent. The top marginal tax rate for wages is 35 percent, though that is reserved for taxable income above $379,150. With tax rates that high, why do so many people pay at lower rates? Because the tax code is riddled with more than $1 trillion in deductions, exemptions and credits, and they benefit people at every income level, according to data from the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation, Congress’ official scorekeeper on revenue issues. The Tax Policy Center estimates that 46 percent of

households, mostly low- and medium-income households, will pay no federal income taxes this year. Most, however, will pay other taxes, including Social Security payroll taxes. “People who are doing quite well and worry about low-income people not paying any taxes bemoan the fact that they get so many tax breaks that they are zeroed out,” said Roberton Williams, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center. “People at the bottom of the distribution say, ‘But all of those rich guys are getting bigger tax breaks than we’re getting,’ which is also the case.” Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner was pressed at a White House briefing on the number of millionaires who pay taxes at a lower rate than middle-income families. He demurred, saying that people who make most of their money in wages pay taxes at a higher rate, while those who get most of their income from investments pay at lower rates. “So it really depends on what is your profession, where’s the source of your income, what’s the specific circumstances you face, and the averages won’t really capture that,” Geithner said.

Yankees offer a helping hand but Red Sox dive continues with loss to Orioles BOSTON (AP) — Robert Andino’s three-run double in the eighth inning gave the Baltimore Orioles a 7-5 win Tuesday night and ruined a chance for the Boston Red Sox to extend their two-game lead in the AL wild-card race. Andino’s go-ahead hit came off Jonathan Papelbon, who had gone 21 games since last allowing a run on July 16. It was his second blown save of the season and first since May 9, the last time he entered a game before the ninth inning. The Red Sox seemed headed for a three-game, wild-card lead over Tampa Bay, which lost to the New York Yankees 5-0 on Tuesday. But their struggles continued as they fell to 4-13 since leading the Rays by nine games on Sept. 3. Boston has seven games remaining and Tampa Bay has nine. Willie Eyre (2-1) got the win and Jim Johnson picked up his eighth save in 13 opportunities. Daniel Bard (2-9) had runners at first and second with one

out when he was replaced by Papelbon. Papelbon, who had 28 strikeouts in the 21 scoreless outings, struck out Chris Davis for the second out. Then Nolan Reimold singled to short left field, loading the bases, and Andino doubled down the right-field line for his third hit of the game. The Red Sox wrap up a three-game series with the Orioles on Wednesday night before playing their last six on the road, three each against the New York Yankees and Baltimore. Adrian Gonzalez drove in three runs with a tworun homer and a double for the Red Sox. They went ahead 1-0 in the first on consecutive doubles by Dustin Pedroia and Gonzalez. But Baltimore scored four runs in the third when starter Erik Bedard threw 51 pitches and retired just two batters. With one out, Andino singled on a 13-pitch at-bat and scored on Nick Markakis’ two-out double. Vladimir Guerrero then hit a liner

to right fielder Josh Reddick who misjudged it by taking a few steps in then had it go off his glove for a two-base error as he went back, allowing Markakis to score. After walks to Matt Wieters and Adam Jones loaded the bases, Mark Reynolds hit a two-run double. The Red Sox cut the lead to 4-3 in the third on a double by Pedroia and Gonzalez’s 27th homer of the season. They went ahead with two runs in the fourth, helped by an error. With no outs, Marco Scutaro walked, Jarrod Saltalamacchia singled and Mike Aviles singled in the tying run. Jacoby Ellsbury’s single loaded the bases. After Pedroia struck out, Gonzalez grounded to first baseman Reynolds, who threw home for the force then let the return throw go off his glove. That allowed Gonzalez, who was several feet from the base when the ball got to Reynolds, to reach safely and Aviles to score the tie-breaking run. Notes: Baltimore manager Buck Showalter was ejected for arguing a third-strike call against Weiters in the fifth. ... CF Jones, who had an injured thumb, and 1B Reynolds, who was hit in the head by a pitch on Saturday returned to the Orioles lineup. ... Ellsbury’s single in the fourth was his 200th hit. It came one day after Gonzalez had five hits to reach 203 for the season. It’s the third time the Red Sox have had two players with 200 hits in the same season — Wade Boggs (240) and Bill Buckner (201) in 1985 and Boggs (207) and Jim Rice (200) in 1986.

Manchester man guilty of cocaine charges related to 2009 bust in Tilton

LACONIA — A Belknap County jury found a Manchester man guilty on two counts of felony possession of cocaine and possession of cocaine, said Belknap County Attorney Melissa Guldbrandsen yesterday. Tilton Detectives Nate Buffington and Mat Dawson initially intercepted Hezekiah Mendoza during a drug transHezekiah Mendoza action that was about to occur (Tilton Police photo)– in early September of 2009. Mendoza had 1.98 ounces or about 56 grams of cocaine when he was arrested. Guldbrandsen said, “This case is an example of proactive community policing by the Tilton Police Department. This is a significant volume of cocaine, with an estimated value of over $5,000 and I am pleased that it was seized and removed from circulation before being distributed in our county.” Guldbrandsen said Mendoza is being held without bail at the Belknap County Jail until his sentencing.

GRAYING from page 3 about putting a down payment on a house. He said people are feeling they should make do with what they have. Despite that, Americans overall still have a strong desire to own a home, regardless of the upheaval in the economy, said Kendall Buck, president of the Home Builders and Remodelers Association of New Hampshire. He said fewer homes are being built today than a few years ago, and new homes today are much smaller than they used to be. He said the builders who have survived the recession have cut staff and worked with consumers to construct more energyefficient homes. Buck said there is optimism in the industry, though, that those builders who are innovative and hardworking can stay afloat.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis have a right to design your life in the way that seems most pleasing to you. Be careful not to put another person’s schedule and objectives ahead of your own. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The way you show that you care is original. You’re not trying to be different, but you can’t help it. When you do what you really want to do, the results are so perfectly you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There will be plenty of strutting and posturing as people try to prove they belong to a certain social or political strata. You don’t feel compelled to prove a thing, which immediately sets you apart. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have a solid sense about what concerns you and what does not. The best part is that you don’t have to delve too deeply into things to figure it out. Give your attention strictly to what pertains directly to you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Even if you’re the only one who determines what is and is not appropriate for your life and schedule, it’s important that you stick to your own rules. When you’re not doing what you’re supposed to be doing, things go wrong. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 21). This year you’ll take risks and eventually enjoy victory. You have a strategy for winning at work, and it will be most effective in October. In November, you’ll be honored with sweet words and a solid commitment. You’ll hustle and bustle through December to meet financial goals. In February, your talents are rewarded. Scorpio and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 1, 24, 39 and 19.


ARIES (March 21-April 19). Everything counts. One small shift will make you a different person. It’s too soon to tell where this will lead, but because of a slight directional change, you’re going somewhere different. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re into people. You want to hear their stories, connect with their goals, witness their dreams. You also want to just hang out with them in a low-key way. It feels good to connect. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be representing others, whether or not you consciously realize that’s what you’re doing. You’ll be associated with others from your family, company, race or creed. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be drawn to excellent storytellers, although you’ll be careful not to believe everything you’re told. Truth may be stranger than fiction, but fiction is often more flattering than truth. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’d like to be a leader, but not a supreme overlord. Having greater stature will not translate into having more power. Your best position is to be “one of the people.” From there, you’ll understand the real issues, perks and problems. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Planning ahead for an event might be your saving grace. This requires more thought than simply how you’ll get there and what you’ll wear. Consider who will be there and what you’d like to talk about. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There will be no need to apologize, so refrain. While you’re at it, this will be a great time to break yourself of the habit of saying “sorry” for minor actions that are not technically offensive at all. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, September 21, 2011— Page 19

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Wednesday, Sept. 21, the 264th day of 2011. There are 101 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 21, 1897, the New York Sun ran its famous editorial, written anonymously by Francis P. Church, that responded to a letter from 8-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon asking whether Santa Claus really existed. Church wrote, “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy.” On this date: In 1893, one of America’s first horseless carriages was taken for a short test drive in Springfield, Mass., by Frank Duryea, who had designed the vehicle with his brother, Charles. In 1937, “The Hobbit,” by J.R.R. Tolkien, was first published. In 1938, a hurricane struck parts of New York and New England, causing widespread damage and claiming some 700 lives. In 1970, “NFL Monday Night Football” made its debut on ABC-TV as the Cleveland Browns defeated the visiting New York Jets, 31-21. In 1981, the Senate unanimously confirmed the nomination of Sandra Day O’Connor to become the first female justice on the Supreme Court. In 1989, Hurricane Hugo crashed into Charleston, S.C. Twenty-one students in Alton, Texas, died when their school bus, involved in a collision with a soft-drink delivery truck, careened into a water-filled pit. In 1991, an 18-hour hostage drama ended in Sandy, Utah, as Richard L. Worthington, who’d killed a nurse and seized control of a hospital maternity ward, finally freed nine captives, including a baby who was born during the siege. One year ago: The mayor and ex-city manager of the Los Angeles suburb of Bell were among eight current and former city officials arrested in a corruption scandal that authorities said cost the blue-collar city more than $5.5 million in excessive salaries and illegal personal loans. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Karl Slover is 93. Actor Larry Hagman is 80. Poet-songwriter Leonard Cohen is 77. Author-comedian Fannie Flagg is 70. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer is 68. Author Stephen King is 64. Actor-comedian Bill Murray is 61. Actorcomedian Dave Coulier is 52. Actor David James Elliott is 51. Actress Serena ScottThomas is 50. Actress Nancy Travis is 50. Actor Rob Morrow is 49. Country singer Faith Hill is 44. Actress-talk show host Ricki Lake is 43. Actor Luke Wilson is 40. Actor Paulo Costanzo is 33. TV personality Nicole Richie is 30. Actress Maggie Grace is 28. Actor Joseph Mazzello is 28. Actors Lorenzo and Nikolas Brino (“7th Heaven”) are 13.

Franconia and flows through the towns of Lincoln, Woodstock, Thornton, Campton, Plymouth, Holderness, Ashland, Bridgewater, New Hampton, Bristol, Hill, and Sanbornton before joining with the Winnipesaukee River in the city of Franklin to form the Merrimack River. Pursuant to the NH Rivers Management and Protection Program, the Corridor Management Plan addresses recreational and non-recreational uses of the river and adjacent lands, protection of floodplains, habitat management, and other issues. The first Corridor Management Plan for the Pemigewasset River was completed by PRLAC in 2001. The local input from the upcoming public meetings and other sources will guide the update of the plan. Support for this effort is being provided by the Lakes Region Planning Commission and North Country Council with funding provided by NHDES through the Clean Water Act. Additional information can be obtained by contacting David Jeffers at Lakes Region Planning Commission (djeffers@ or 279-8171) or Tara Bamford at North Country Council ( or 4446303).

Dear Annie: We all know that health care is expensive and that finding good, affordable care can be tough. There is a way your readers can avoid unnecessary heath care bills: by learning what high-quality care looks like. We spend a whopping $700 billion a year on health care in America for tests, procedures, medical appointments, hospital stays and other services that don’t improve one’s health. As a society, we get an awful lot of health care that helps us feel better -- even saves our lives -- but also a lot that is unnecessary or wrong and can be dangerous. Sometimes we don’t receive the care we should be getting to treat our conditions. During the month of September, we are asking Americans to “Care About Your Care.” We want people to understand, identify and receive care that is safe and effective. Your readers can go to to learn how to recognize -- and demand -- high-quality care. -- Sincerely, John R. Lumpkin, M.D., Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Dear Dr. Lumpkin: Thank you for giving us this opportunity to mention your website, which offers suggestions for readers to learn how to best manage their health. In this day and age, it is vitally important that we recognize the most effective ways to protect ourselves and stay well. We hope your website will be up and running for a long time. Dear Annie: Family get-togethers have turned into a big headache. I understand that some relatives have food allergies. But my siblings have become very picky eaters. One has self-imposed dietary restrictions, another is a semivegan, another won’t eat beef, another only will eat freerange chicken, and one doesn’t eat vegetables of a certain color. Last year I told them that I will make the main dishes,

and they can bring side dishes. They said that would be too difficult, as they live too far away and the food wouldn’t be fresh. In order to accommodate everyone, I would have to have a personal chef. Eating out isn’t an option since we live in a semi-rural area and there aren’t a lot of restaurants. My siblings were not raised like this. Mom always had good, balanced meals. It seems to me they could eat what’s on the table as best they can. This is really annoying me. What can I do before the holidays start? -- Stressed Out by Picky Eaters Dear Stressed: There is a limit to how accommodating you need to be. Prepare a meal that the majority will eat. Have enough side dishes so no one will starve. Then tell them you hope they enjoy the meal, but if not, you will understand if they choose to go elsewhere. Smile politely and ignore all negative comments about the food. We suspect they will find a way to nibble on something. Dear Annie: May I add another story about not getting a condolence card from the doctor’s office? A few years ago, I received a condolence card addressed to my family from my doctor’s office, signed by all the doctors and personnel. They thought I had died. They said many nice things about how I would be missed and how well I was liked. I called the office and said I was still alive and would be in soon for my annual checkup. The receptionist checked her records and said, “Oh, my! It says you are deceased!” I told her at least I found out what they thought of me. We both had a good laugh over that. I have a fairly common name and understand how it might have happened. My records were changed, and I breathed a sign of relief. -- Staying Alive

Trio Veritas performing at PSU’s Smith Recital Hall on Sunday

PLYMOUTH — The Department of Music, Theatre and Dance at Plymouth State University will present Trio Veritas, performing works by Haydn, Debussy, Bernstein and Caplan at 1 p.m. Sunday, September 25. The performance will be held in the Smith Recital Hall at the Silver Center for the Arts. Trio members are PSU Professor and pianist, Dan Perkins, violinist Ella Marie Gray, and guest cellist Terri Benshoof who is traveling from Seattle for the performance. Perkins explains that the program presents youthful works by Claude Debussy (Piano Trio in G minor, written when he was 18), and Leonard Bernstein (written at the age of 19 while a student at Harvard). Debussy’s trio is written in a fully Romantic style, showing only subtle hints at the Impressionistic style to come. Bernstein’s trio foreshadows the rhythmic complexity that permeates his mature compositional style. In addition, the ensemble will perform a piano trio by Oliver Caplan, a young Boston-based composer. Illuminated by the Light to Two Ships Passing in the Night is Caplan’s first piano trio. To anchor these youthful works, the ensemble will perform Piano Trio in C major by a mature Franz Josef Haydn, written when he was 65. Tickets for Trio Veritas at Plymouth State University are $14 for adults, $13 for seniors and $11 for youth at the Silver Center Box Office, 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869.

Comedian Larry Miller at Silver Center on Saturday night

PLYMOUTH — Larry Miller, who says he finds comedy in his observation of the things that are annoying to all of us, will bring his show, Cocktails with Larry Miller, to Plymouth State University’s Hanaway Theatre at the Silver Center on Saturday, Sept. 24 at 8:30 p.m. As one of Hollywood’s most recognizable faces”, Miller has appeared in more than 50 films and numerous television shows. He began his career with a memorabl”e cameo as the brown nosing store manager in “Pretty Woman, and has since gon”e on to delight audiences in some of the most unforgettable roles in such films as “Best in Show, “Waiting for Guffman”, “The Princess Diaries” I and II and “The Nutty Professor I and II. Miller has made dozens of appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, and Real Time with Bill Maher. Viewers remember him as the vindictive doorman on Seinfeld, as Michael Dobson in two different Law & Order episodes, or as Edwin Poole in Boston Legal. Additionally, he was the writer for TV’s Uncommon Sense, Just Words and Pros & Cons. On the Hanaway stage, Miller will share his perspective on marriage, children and drinking … and how any one can lead to the other two. Miller combines his stand-up comedy, acting and musical talents to create a fresh and funny theatrical experience based on his book, “Spoiled Rotten America”. Tickets for Miller’s PSU appearance are $35-23 for adults, $33-23 for seniors and $25-15 for youth at the Silver Center Box Office, 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869. Online tickets sales are at
